2 A Druid's Herbal for the Sacred Earth Year

Hopman, Ellen Evert Trade Paperback

Brand New 

For the ancient Druids, the healing and magical properties of herbs were inseparable from the larger cycles of the seasons, the movements of the planets, and the progression of a human life. This book shows the reader how to use herbs when creating rituals to celebrate festivals and significant life passages such as births, house blessings, weddings, funerals, and naming ceremonies. Drawing on extensive research and a deep personal experience with Pagan traditions, it explores the history and folklore surrounding the eight major Celtic festivals. Using these Celtic traditions as examples, the author suggests ways to incorporate the symbolic and magical power of herbs into personal rituals that honor all phases of life from childbirth to last rites. Filled with practical information and imaginative suggestions for using herbs for healing, ceremony, and magic, this book is an indispensable and comprehensive guide to age-old herbal practices.

3 A Druid's Herbal of Sacred Tree Medicine

Hopman, Ellen Evert Trade Paperback

Brand New 

The Druids used the ancient Ogham Tree Alphabet to work magic and honor the dead, surrounding each letter with medicinal and spiritual lore. Poets and bards created a secret sign language to describe the letters, each of which is named for a tree or a plant. For centuries this language was transmitted only orally in order to protect its secrets. Combining her extensive herbal knowledge and keen poetic insight, Ellen Evert Hopman delves deeply into the historic allusions and associations of each of the 20 letters of the Ogham Tree Alphabet. She also examines Native American healing methods for possible clues to the way ancient Europeans may have used these trees as healing agents. Druidic spiritual practices, herbal healing remedies, and plant lore are included for each tree in the alphabet as well as how each is used in traditional rituals such as the Celtic Fire Festivals and other celebrations. Hopman also includes a pronunciation guide for the oghams and information on the divinatory meanings associated with each tree. A few small illustrations (b&w).

7 Ancient Way to Keep Fit: Stretching Illustrated

Wu, Zong (Compiled by), and Mao, Li (Compiled by), and Frantzis, Kumar (Foreword by) Shelter Publications 2000 936070145 Illustrated. Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 224 p. Contai 

The present is born out of the past. Chi Gung is an ancient Chinese system which emphasizes improving the flow of the life force, chi, by opening the body s energy centers and channels. It is called the internal martial arts, and is the original basis for Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and the more well-known martial arts. The practice represented here is over 3000 years old and yet it is practiced in modern times. There are 30 sets of physical exercises with a total of 318 drawings. These drawings are watercolors based on silk scrolls and cave paintings and enhance the classic nature of the presentation. This is a serious system that practitioners consider to be more basic to health and fitness than cardiovascular exercise. Exercises involve simple movement with many repetitions to achieve results. The modern use of these ancient exercises is based on selection of sets of each, consistent with the level of fitness and integrated with whatever sports or other exercise is involved.

8 Botanical Preservation Corps Field Training Manual: Practical Field Techniques for Collecting, Documenting, Processing and Shipping Seeds, Plants, Propagules and Dried Voucher Specimens of Tropical Plants for Preservation in Botanical Gardens and Herbarium Archives Worldwide

Montgomery, Rob Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

This manual is a training guide in practical field techniques for collecting, documenting, processing and shipping seeds, plants, propagules and dried voucher specimens of tropical plants for preservation in botanical gardens and herbarium archives worldwide. Designed as a stand-alone manual for anyone interested in learning how to do field collecting. Surprisingly, there really aren't any such manuals available and we had to write this one in order to provide Botanical Preservation Corps volunteers with the necessary guidance and skills. This manual is still in a draft form and is being worked up for future publication. Meanwhile it has served many people and has been given good comments from many amateur as well as professional botanists. Here is what Richard Evans Schultes had to say: The need for a good collecting manual for plant specimens is urgent, especially with the many non-botanists who are anxious to collect specimens. This urgency is the result of environmental conservation efforts, the greatly increased interest for plant analyses by pharmaceutical organizations looking for new medicinal compounds and growing emphasis in our schools on natural history. This collecting manual should be widely available because of the need and because of the extremely high quality of the publication. We all must congratulate and thank Botanical Preservation Corps for the time and effort to create this document. -Richard Evans Schultes PhD, FMLS

With the intriguing regenerative qualities of the Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), Chlorella is a highly prized health food in Japan, where millions of people eat it daily. Chlorella covers the many benefits of this ancient organism, including recipes for incorporating Chlorella into your diet.

11 Combat First Aid: A Citizen's Guide to Treating Battlefield Injury DVD

Machine, Garret 805966063232 DVD

Brand New! 

One of the most overlooked aspects of lethal combat is the aftermath: what if you or your battle buddy is gravely injured and needs medical attention before the EMTs arrive? In this video, former Israeli Special Forces medic Garret Machine teaches you the lifesaving skills he learned on some of the world's most dangerous battlefields. He begins by putting together a basic first aid kit comprised of items anyone can purchase, and from there goes into how each one is used, from personal bandages to tourniquets to airway devices and more. Concentrating on a step-by-step schematic of assessment and treatment of the most severe injuries first, Machine prepares you for the kinds of medical contingencies you're most likely to encounter as a result of damage in the field: stopping arterial bleeding, providing rescue breathing, and prepping your patient for transport. He keeps the focus on tactical situations rather than the perfection of an antiseptic hospital so that if the worst should happen, wherever it is, you'll be prepared and ready. For information purposes only.

13 Deadly Harvest: The Intimate Relationship Between Our Health and Our Food

Bond, Geoff 9780760000000 Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

With a record number of overweight people and an alarming increase in degenerative diseases, many of us find ourselves turning to meds or fad diets in an effort to drop excess pounds or recover our health. Since most drugs come with dangerous side effects, modifying our diet would seem relatively safe and simple. But what if our foods were doing more harm than good, and fad diets only made matters worse? Deadly Harvest is a groundbreaking book that carefully examines how the foods we eat today have little in common with the foods of our ancestors, and why this fact is so important to our health. It also offers a proven program to enhance health, combat illness, and improve longevity. Author Geoff Bond is a nutritional anthropologist who has for years investigated both foods of the past and our prehistoric eating habits. Using the latest scientific research and studies of primitive tribal lifestyles, Bond first explains the actual diet that our ancestors followed--a diet that was and still is in harmony with the human species. He then describes how the foods in today's diets disrupt our biochemistry and digestive system, leading to health disorders such as allergies, arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, obesity, and more. Most important, he explains the appropriate measures we can take to avoid these diseases--and even beat them back--through healthy eating. Contrary to what many people believe, the disorders that plague our society are not inevitable, but are the unfortunate result of modern dietary choices. Deadly Harvest not only explains why these problems have arisen, but offers a blueprint for improving our diet, our health, and our quality of life.

29 Getting Back in Shape: 32 Workout Programs for Lifelong Fitness (3rd Edition)

Anderson, Bob & Others Trade Paperback

Brand New 

Getting Back in Shape is a unique workout book for anyone who wants to get fit, written by international stretching authority Bob Anderson, bodybuilding legend Bill Pearl, exercise physiologist Ed Burke, and now with Olympic runner and author Jeff Galloway. The authors believe that most recent fitness books are too ambitious for the average person. In the same mode as Stretching and Getting Stronger, this is a simple, visual approach to lifelong fitness. Among the four of them, they have spent a total of over 100 years working in four different fields of physical activity: Bob in stretching, Bill in weight training, Ed in aerobic exercise, Jeff in running. They’ve worked with many thousands of people. They watched the fads come and go. They’ve learned what works — and what does not. They’ve seen that the exercise programs and “fitness prescriptions” of the last two decades have not worked for most people. For one thing, the standards have been too high for the average person. (Less than 10% of Americans now exercise enough to get cardiorespiratory health benefits.). They’ve also seen a growing appreciation over the past few years for the value of “moderate” exercise. Something one can stick with for a lifetime. They believe that what’s needed in this day and age are structured, balanced workout programs which: are not too extreme, are mainly graphic, let you choose your level of commitment, will fit within your busy schedule. They’ve combined their experience to produce Getting Back in Shape. Using this book will start one on a gradual, steady path that will lead to a lifetime of: better cardiovascular health, greater strength, & improved flexibility
